Sizing Up Shrimp

When buying shrimp, check the label and you'll see a set of numbers divided by a slash, such as 16/20 or 51/60. These numbers refer to the count or number of shrimp per pound. While there are no regulations governing the use of such terms as "large" or "jumbo," stores are required to display the number of shrimp per pound, so we'll begin including the count with our recipes to use as a guideline. One location may label a 51/60 count shrimp as medium size, while another may label it as large and charge a premium price.
